Life stuff & getting things done!

Wednesday, October 22, 2014

    (currently happening in my living room)

Hoping you're all having a wonderful week so far?

It's been super fun decorating/designing our apartment but I'm beginning to have that feeling of "What have I gotten myself into?" I have soooo much to do! I'm making progress which is positive but it's taking far longer to get things done then I would like. I suppose thats thing I'm learning is "just go with the flow". I've also been having major dental work in between all of this so thats really fun too! (NOT!)

To give you an idea of what I'm talking about, here's a list of whats left to do:

- paint the bedroom & kitchen
- hang curtain track over closet
- install bike rack (which will be concealed)
- install shelf & ceiling light fixture in bathroom + finishing touches
- hang guitar on living room wall 
- create gallery wall around the tv 
- possibly replace the entertainment unit
- find lounge chair for living room
- hang large mirror above sofa
- install open shelving in kitchen
- install coat hooks in entrance

Well thats it! but not really because decorating/design never ends.
I'm incredibly grateful to be able to do what I love and I know this isn't a big gut/renovation or anything but it's definitely a bit of an undertaking.

Believe me, I'm not complaining...I live for this kind of stuff :)

What undertakings have you gotten yourself into lately?

Fall is finally here! It's my favorite season and calls for all things earthy and cozy!
Have a lovely weekend <3

Tiny Sneak Peek! (bathroom makeover)

Monday, October 6, 2014

Last weekend my husband and I tackled painting our apartment bathroom...the transformative aspect of paint is really amazing. The bathroom before was beige and felt really bland and boring. Only a little natural light is let in, so painting it coral woke up the entire room. I snapped a quick pic to show you some improvements we've made. Above the medicine cabinet is a gold/white clamp light fixture from Ikea. It's really lovely against the coral color and it's utilitarian. 

We also installed pretty lilac/gold knobs on the sink cabinet doors.

A quick spray of gold on the light switch itself turned out to be a nice little detail.

Currently looking for a little picture to hang on the left wall there.

I'll do a full reveal post within the next few weeks...I'm just so excited it's finally coming together I had to share a sneak peek :)

Bathroom color is Behr 'Coral Expression'
(the color in person is less orangey-red and has more pink tones)

New Camera & Kitchen Wall Sneak Peek!

Friday, September 26, 2014

Oh my goodness you guys! the kitchen wall looks really cool & I'm really excited about it!
Once the Carrera Marble paper went up I realized the existing kitchen paint color clashed "like alot" so it's going to be painted a pale gray to coincide with the paper. For now here's a little peek of what the paper looks like on my kitchen wall...

It's kind of wonderful!

I recently invested in a good quality camera and I wanted to share with you how much I love it!
It's a Nikon D3100. I haven't bought any fancy lenses yet, I've just been using the standard lense it came with. Honestly it works perfectly fine for me as is. I enjoy the lightness of it and how easy it is to handle...the quality of the pics come out nicely and are clear.
If you're in the market for a basic good quality SLR I highly recommend a D3100.

Below are some shots of my feline Sylvia taken with the camera.

Isn't she sweet? 

I'll be painting the bathroom this weekend ..... stay tuned for the after pics!

Happy Weekend!!!

Kitchen Wall

Monday, September 15, 2014

Some of you may remember this post ,I was thinking of wallpapering my kitchen accent wall in a lovely gold floral wallpaper. I've changed my mind since then and I'm going with a Carrera marble contact paper on the whole wall. It will add freshness to the space as well as a classic feel.
A few things have changed in my kitchen since this photo was taken, but heres a mock up of what the Carrera contact paper will sort of look like.

Since I'm a renter, I figure I can live out my Carrera marble dreams with contact paper ;)
... and of course no post would be complete without some Pinspiration.

Stay tuned...
